Blackberry playbook blues

I have two BlackBerry playbooks. It’s such a waste! I hardly ever use them. They are so beautifully made.

But

I’ve dug them out and am trying to use them again.

I’ve reinstalled the rim operating system. Wow it seems to have been updated. That’s a surprise! For years I longed for an update. BlackBerry stuff used to be fantastic

in the beginning.

But their rim system has been completely superseded by Apple and android.

BlackBerry playbook used to be my midnight friend when I first started blogging here on WordPress. But now WordPress’s ‘new and improved!!!! system doesn’t work on BlackBerry playbook.

But

I’ve found I can still use the old dashboard system – the old GOOD system that WordPress replaced to make a post at midnight should I feel like it. I have to overcome a few glitches to do it but, SEE! I have posted here from my old playbook.

I’ll even try inserting a photo. If you don’t see it, I couldn’t do it.

Elephant skipping languidly seems to have been updated.

I moved my old blogger-blog ‘Life on an alien planet’ to WordPress

I just exported and imported my old blogger-blog called ‘Life on an Alien planet’ to WordPress. People were complaining they couldn’t comment. I have just started blogging there again – all my old posts from 2012 are in the Archives called ‘old posts’ – and the comments too, I think. It was amazingly simple!

Here is the link – Life on an alien planet.

In the process I found out I have 2638 followers.

I didn’t know.

Fancy that!

Please follow me there.

The difference between this blog and that one is –

About this blog (Alien planet)

This blog is where I can get very sour, very political, very depressed, very disappointed, very philosophical, very confused, very nostalgic, very cynical, very obnoxious, very old-fashioned, grumpy and irritated

and

spoil your day!

I’ve restarted THAT ¬†blog, because THIS one is supposed to be short and sweet about frogs, and pussycats, art, gardens and happy observations. And – in the beginning, it was! Now I think it’s mostly spoiling your day too!

It’s a miracle!

Foretelling.

Foreknowledge.

A time warp.

Bloggers banging on

Recently, two of the bloggers I follow – who inspire me with their ideas, have put their blogs on “Suspended”. They explain, they have run out of ideas – are overwhelmed by the black dog, feel they have no “audience”, no oomph, no enthusiasm. The will to blog has left them.¬† Continue reading
